Guidepost Montessori at Fort Mason is located in the heart of San Francisco. We are a former AltSchool transitioning gradually to the Guidepost Montessori program. At the core of our school is our belief that children thrive when given freedom and responsibility, under the guidance of dedicated coaches, in curated environments prepared especially for them. Our program is grounded in Montessori’s approach to building independence and foundational knowledge within a best-in-class personalized learning framework.
The Guidepost Montessori mission is to modernize and mainstream the Montessori movement. Montessori, implemented in full fidelity, has always emphasized children's autonomy, intrinsic motivation, creative problem-solving, innovation and independence. We are a group of forward-thinking, innovative educators who believe in optimizing the use of technology — both behind the scenes, and as an essential tool for older students preparing to thrive in today’s rapidly changing world.
Our beautiful campus and welcoming community is the perfect place for your child to explore her own potential.
Guidepost Montessori classrooms are light, airy, calming, aesthetically beautiful spaces. Each material is carefully chosen and carefully displayed — to inspire and entice your child to explore.
